LOS ANGELES, Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Live.me Inc. has been named one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies in Video for 2018, recognizing Live.me as a leader in mobile video and the live broadcasting industry.
After its launch in April 2016, Live.me established itself as a leader in the mobile content space with an innovative take on providing a rich environment for broadcasters and creators of all sizes. Live.me successfully blends fun gaming elements along with in-app contests and combines them with creative features to offer users the latest capabilities on mobile devices, such as virtual gifting and facial recognition filters.
Live.me Inc. fulfilled its mobile developer roots and released its second app, Cheez, in late 2017—a short, looping video app to cater to the opposite spectrum of live video and fill a void left by Vine.
Looking forward, Live.me Inc. will continue to innovate in various ways, including original programming aimed squarely at live viewers who demand broadcasters' attention. The company already produces over 5 hours of daily original content, including QuizBiz, the live trivia show broadcast on Live.me and Cheez that has had explosive growth using new technology. Spotlight LIVE, the weekly variety show on Live.me has also gained a rabid viewership from addressing the audience directly and authentically.
"There are more creators than ever before and everyone is looking for a safe place for their content. Live.me will continue to facilitate creator relationships as we expand internet video," said Khudor Annous, Head of Marketing and Partnerships at Live.me. "Catering to creators and helping them become expert broadcasters will always be a focus of the Live.me platform."
"Live broadcasting has come along way in a few short years, and we're very pleased to have played a key role in shaping it," said Live.me CEO Yuki He. "There is still a lot more to come, however, and Live.me will continue to drive the industry forward in new and exciting ways, striving to lead in creating opportunities for all people."
